To help blow (or more accurately, wash) the hangover from the night before at the FRCC Centenary Banquet away we decided to brave the rain and go for a bumble up Eskdale today. We don’t normally go out in the rain – why should we, we play our outdoor pursuits for fun, and it’s rarely much fun in pouring rain! I figured that it was only the second time my waterproof jacket had seen the rain on the hill (that is, not including trips to the pub). It’s four years old! Boris had a great idea, it wasn’t that windy (unlike Saturday), so he took an umbrella too.
